JDBC: Metadata about column

Hi.

I'm trying to recreate table definition from any DBMS.
Does anybody know how to dynamically detect if column definition has to contain any parameters ?

example:

column of type VARCHAR2 in Oracle DBMS must have parameter "max.length", but column of type INT in MS SQL Server is parameterless..

I've tried to use DatabaseMetaData.getTypeInfo. It returns CREATE_PARAMS info about data type, but it seems it's not working as I think it would.
I do not have detailed description of MetaData functions except API, but there it isn't described in detail.

Regards.

I think that there isn't database independent solution.

When YOU say so, it's bad.

I silently guessed that too.
